APPLE AND ALMOND MEAL CAKE OR APPLE MUFFINS
This cake is a great cake to make for any festivity such as Christmas and New Year, or for a birthday.
It is super moist and naturally sweet so you don't have to add much sweetener. You can make it as a cake or as muffins - if you make muffins then you will need to cook them less time (about half the time as compared to the cake).
2 ½ cups almond meal
2 tsp Gluten Free baking powder
4-5 apples, peeled and diced into 1 cm pieces
½ cup honey (or can use less if preferred)
1 tsp vanilla bean powder
½ cup macadamia oil
Place the eggs, macadamia oil and honey into a bowl and whisk together In a separate bowl mix the almond meal, salt, baking powder and vanilla bean powder. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix. Then add most of the chopped apple to the mixture (leaving some for the top of the cake) and mix in. If the cake needs more moisture, you can add a little almond milk. Pour into a greased cake tin lined with baking paper. Sprinkle the remaining apple pieces on top of the cake pressing them down a little if needed. Cook in pre-heated oven (180 C) for about 50 minutes or till done.
